This week, you’ve got a trade show, an auction, and lots of opportunities to stay in the loupe with the latest jewelry designs and hot topics via Instagram Live, webinars, and more…
Atlanta Jewelry Show: Oct. 25, 9 a.m.–4 p.m. ET
Today is Day 2 day of this weekend-long event—the first show many in our industry have been able to attend in person. So if you’re within driving distance, why not make a mad dash over there to see (and touch!) jewels from some of your favorite designers and manufacturers such Lika Behar, Mazza, and Royal Chain. Comprehensive health and safety guidelines, including mandatory thermal temperature scanning for all exhibitors and attendees, are in place.
Christie’s Jewels Online–Iconic Designs Sale: Through Oct. 27
Just two more days to shop this sale composed of 50 carefully curated examples of definitive jewelry designs from Bulgari, Cartier, David Webb, JAR, Tiffany & Co., Van Cleef & Arpels, Verdura, and more. Knowing that Jackie Kennedy purchased her first Schlumberger enamel bracelet in 1962 (and collected them when she became Mrs. Onassis), the bracelet above is among the most covetable pieces on offer.
Monday Member Magnified Instagram Live: Oct. 26 at 6:30 p.m. ET
Tune in to @wjanewyorkmetro to watch its Metro Member Magnified series, which provides designer members the opportunity to share their work with a larger audience. Without trade shows or trunk shows as viable options this holiday season, especially in the NY metro area, the series is a great way for industry friends, supporters, and retailers to see new product. Each episode will be saved to WJA Metro’s IGTV in case viewers miss the live event (sharing this content is encouraged). Monday’s episode will feature Eve Streicker, owner of Original Eve Designs, who is also the chapter president.
